About the Laser Hair Removal

Numerous laser treatments are available to remove hair. During your consultation, we will determine the best treatment program for you based on your skin color, hair color, and the treatment area.



  • How it works
    Laser hair removal uses an intense, pulsating beam of light to penetrate the skin and target the hair follicle. The laser damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.

    Laser hair removal is most effective in people with light skin and dark hair, as the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle.

    Laser hair removal can treat unwanted hair in nearly any area. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

    1) Legs
    2) Underarms
    3) Upper lip
    4) Chin
    5) Bikini area
    6) Back
  • Treatment
    During the procedure, your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Cooling fans may also be used to counter the heat from the laser. Your doctor will pass the handheld laser device over your skin. You may feel a slight stinging sensation. Small areas, such as the upper lip, may require only a few minutes. Larger areas, such as the back, may take up to several hours.
  • Results
    Several treatments may be necessary to see a significant reduction in hair growth. The length of time between each treatment will depend on the growth rate of your hair. Treatments for body hair removal are typically performed in six to ten-week intervals, while facial hair removal treatments may be performed every four to six weeks. Periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain results.
